Transfer news LIVE!

Time is up on transfer deadline day with the final deals completed on a dramatic day. Liverpool have sealed the signing of Ryan Gravenberch, despite Bayern Munich’s move for Joao Palhinha collapsing in dramatic fashion.

Chelsea, meanwhile, have signed Cole Palmer and will keep Ian Maatsen. Conor Gallagher was attracting interest from Spurs but that move is off the table, though Tottenham have at least signed Brennan Johnson for £45million.

Manchester United have landed Sergio Reguilon from Tottenham and late in the day confirmed the signing of Fiorentina midfielder Sofyan Amrabat on loan. Mason Greenwood has joined LaLiga club Getafe on loan. Follow all the latest transfer news, rumours and gossip live on deadline day below!

Greenwood joins Getafe on loan

23:09 , Matt Verri

LaLiga club Getafe have signed Mason Greenwood on loan from Manchester United.

The former England striker is set for a return to football 18 months after being suspended by United amid allegations of attempted rape, controlling and coercive behaviour and assault.

The Crown Prosecutive Service ended its own case in February of this year following the “withdrawal of key witnesses”, and United confirmed it would conduct its own investigation.

Last month, the Premier League club revealed that Greenwood’s future would lie away from Old Trafford despite a statement outlining their belief that the 21-year-old “did not commit the offences in respect of which he was originally charged”.

The player has Madrid-based side Getafe until the end of the season on loan. He still has two years left to run on his United contract.

A United statement on the move read: “The move enables Greenwood to begin to rebuild his career away from Manchester United.

“The club will continue to offer its support to Mason and his family during this period of transition.”

Spurs seal £45m deal

23:05 , Matt Verri

Tottenham have signed Brennan Johnson on transfer deadline day after agreeing a £45million deal with Nottingham Forest.

The Wales international, who travelled down from Forest’s training ground to London for a medical on Friday, becomes the seventh signing of the Ange Postecoglou era at Spurs.

Tottenham had been locked in talks with Forest over the forward, after interest from Chelsea waned following their capture of Cole Palmer from Manchester City. Spurs chairman Daniel Levy and Forest owner Evangelos Marinakis led discussions and an agreement was reached on deadline day.

Rob Holding has completed his move to Crystal Palace from Arsenal.

Sarr made to wait

22:44 , Matt Verri

Chelsea defender Malang Sarr hasn’t found a move away before transfer deadline day, writes Nizaar Kinsella.

The 24-year-old has struggled to find a move due to his £100,000-a-week wages and difficult loan spells at Monaco and Porto.

Sarr can still move to any of Turkey, Belgium, Czech Republic, Greece, Switzerland and Saudi Arabia where transfer windows remain open beyond the 11pm deadline tonight.

Lyon move for Moreira

22:40 , Matt Verri

Chelsea winger Diego Moreira has joined Lyon on a season-long loan deal, writes Nizaar Kinsella.

The 19-year-old made his Chelsea debut in the 2-1 win over AFC Wimbledon in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday but joins the French giants in a surprise move.

Mauricio Pochettino had a good look at Moreira during his pre-season tour of the United States but has decided the youngster is better off gaining experience elsewhere after his free transfer move from Benfica.

Moreira takes up the final international loan spot meaning new signing Deivid Washington, who joined in a £17million deal from Santos last week, will likely stay.

The 18-year-old striker was expected to join Chelsea’s partner club RC Strasbourg.

Big boost for Man United

22:36 , Matt Verri

Manchester United have bolstered their midfield with the addition of Moroccan midfielder Sofyan Amrabat.

United confirmed the deal for the 27-year-old late on transfer deadline day, which is thought to be an initial loan from Fiorentina with an option to buy.

Erik ten Hag had long identified Amrabat – who he managed between 2015 and 2017 at Dutch club Utrecht – as a priority midfield target, to add support and backup to Casemiro. The player was always keen on the move.

United sold Fred to Fenerbahce earlier in the summer, with Amrabat now joining Casemiro, Scott McTominay – who is expected to stay at the club amid interest from Fulham – and fellow summer signing Mason Mount in Ten Hag’s revamped midfield at Old Trafford.

With the deal having been completed after midday on deadline day, Amrabat will not be available for United’s weekend Premier League clash at Arsenal.

Gravenberch shirt number explained

22:01 , Matt Verri

Ryan Gravenberch’s Liverpool shirt number has been confirmed after he completed a £34million transfer from Bayern Munich.

Ajax academy graduate Gravenberch will don the No38 shirt an Anfield.

Traditional midfield options No14, No15 and No16 were also up for grabs and there was a big gap between No22 and No 31 - last worn by Raheem Sterling - that only Andy Robertson occupies at No26.

However, a sentimental option was also there for Gravenberch. He wore the No38 shirt during his early days in the Ajax first-team and took that number at Bayern too, with his more regular Ajax No8 not available at either Munich or Anfield.

21:45 , Matt Verri

Liverpool have completed the transfer deadline day acquisition of Ryan Gravenberch.

The Dutch midfielder joins from Bayern Munich for a reported fee of £34.2million, a year after joining the German giants for £15m from Ajax.

There had been late fears that Bayern would pull the plug on the deal after their bid for Fulham’s Joao Palhinha collapsed, with the Portuguese star eyed as Gravenberch’s replacement.

Alas, Liverpool were still able to complete the deal after the 21-year-old completed a medical on Friday afternoon.

Crystal Palace have terminated Vicente Guaita’s contract to allow him to join Celta Vigo on a free transfer, writes Nizaar Kinsella.

The 36-year-old goalkeeper has spent five years in south London but leaves after falling out with manager Roy Hodgson.

Sam Johnstone will remain the club’s No1 option and Dean Henderson has been brought in from Manchester United as competition.

Guaita returns to his native Spain where he will play under former Liverpool and Newcastle manager Rafael Benitez.

He leaves after 154 games for Palace, during some of the best years in the club’s recent history.

Lloris will not join Newcastle

21:14 , Matt Verri

There are conflicting reports emerging from Tottenham and Newcastle over the Magpies’ reported interest in Hugo Lloris, writes Dan Kilpatrick.

Spurs believe the Frenchman has turned down a loan offer from St. James’ Park but sources at Newcastle insist the stories are wide of the mark.

Either way, Lloris will not be moving to the north east but there is some hope at Spurs that his hometown club Nice may make an eleventh-hour move after releasing their own veteran goalkeeper, Kasper Schmeichel.

Spurs could decide to cancel the final year of Lloris’ contract but, with just under two hours of the window to go, that is very much considered a last resort.

Sanchez unlikely to get Spurs exit

21:08 , Matt Verri

Davinson Sanchez is another player expected to remain at Tottenham after the deadline, writes Dan Kilpatrick.

As it stands, he is with the squad in Burnley preparing for tomorrow’s match after interest from French club Rennes and PSV Eindhoven apparently came to nothing.

Spurs are not giving up on offloading Tanguy Ndombele, although a move to a European club is now all but over.

The Saudi and Turkish remain open, which gives Spurs hope of shifting the Frenchman at a later date. Ndombele turned down interest from Galatasaray and Fenerbahce earlier this month but it remains to be seen if he will have a change of heart once all other options are exhausted.

Hojbjerg is now set to stay at Spurs, and is expected to return to the bench for Saturday’s Premier League game at Burnley.

Carragher questions Gravenberch deal

19:20 , Matt Verri

Liverpool are expected to announce the signing of Ryan Gravenberch later this evening, but Jamie Carragher is not convinced he will be the answer to their defensive midfield issues.

“It’s interesting where he is going to fit in because I don’t think he’s necessarily this defensive midfield player that I think Liverpool still need, even though they have brought a player in from Germany,” Carragher said.

“I think he’s more of a No 8, he’s box-to-box, he gets forward - and I think that’s why Bayern got rid of him, because Thomas Tuchel didn’t want to play him in that position.

“He’s a player Jurgen Klopp and the club wanted 12-18 months ago and I’m interested to see where he fits in and if Klopp thinks he’s going to be that defensive midfield player.”

According to The Telegraph, PSG have not given Ekitike permission to speak to Palace and feel the forward’s agent has been trying to agree a deal without them. Palace want a loan, but PSG prefer a permanent sale.

Eric Dier is set to stay at the club, with The Athletic reporting that he is now likely to leave on a free transfer next summer.

Hojbjerg and Gallagher doubts grow...

18:38 , Matt Verri

Doubts are beginning to grow about Tottenham’s interest in Chelsea midfielder Conor Gallagher, writes Nizaar Kinsella.

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg’s potential move to Fulham or Atletico Madrid is looking less and less likely too, as the player has been unable to agree terms with either club.

Of course, all three players were in a transfer chain with Joao Palhinha who saw a £60million transfer to Bayern Munich collapse despite him flying to Germany to complete a medical.

Gallagher isn’t pushing for a move but Chelsea could be tempted to cash in at the right price.

Trevoh Chalobah is also very likely to stay at Chelsea after his loan move to Munich collapsed.

The Saudi side are believed to be prepared to go to £200m for Salah, but Liverpool continue to insist he is not for sale.

“For Liverpool to sell now, they’re not going to want what he’s worth,” Carragher told Sky Sports.

“They’ll want well more than that. Is he worth £150m if there’s no Saudi Arabia situation at the moment? Of course he isn’t.

“Why have they left it so late? If they wanted him so badly, why wouldn’t they make this bid six weeks ago?”

Dom Smith on Palhinha’s failed Bayern switch

17:56 , Dominic Booth

It is a major boost for Fulham that they have been able to hold on to Joao Palhinha. He flew to Munich today for his medical, but his move to Bayern always depended on Fulham finding a replacement.

There was interest in McTominay and an approach about Hojbjerg but no official bid for either player. Neither was convinced it was a move that suited them perfectly. Bayern pushed hard to get the Palhinha deal done, but Fulham rejected a “massive” bid and get to keep their man as a result.

What a boost. In a post-Mitrovic world, the Cottagers’ most important and best player by far.

17:25 , Dominic Booth

Al-Ittihad have shrugged off Jurgen Klopp’s warning by formulating a £200million bid for Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah, according to reports.

The Mail say the Saudi Arabian club are willing to make the Egyptian winger the most expensive footballer in history - and won’t let up until their transfer window shuts next Thursday.

Postecoglou message to Spurs fringe stars

17:03 , Dominic Booth

There’s been lots of talk that Spurs are keen to jettison players today, an issue Postecoglou addressed in his press conference today:

“No-one’s not been integrated, no-one hasn’t been training with the team. I’m not isolating anyone at the moment.

“Players have got their own reasons for making these decisions but ultimately, come the deadline, we’re going to have to name a 25-man list and we’ve got more than that at the moment, so some people are going to miss out. It’s up to them to decide the next step.

“From my perspective, we haven’t excluded anyone from training. The numbers in training are manageable right now and while they’re manageable I don’t see the need to do anything different.”

West Ham exits latest

16:50 , Dominic Booth

Still all quiet on the West Ham front at the moment, Malik Ouzia reports.

It won’t be too long before we start to get team news through from their game at Luton tonight, where any involvement at all for the likes of Maxwel Cornet and Pablo Fornals would, you assume, rule out the chance of a late exit.


Nizaar Kinsella reports

16:46 , Dominic Booth

Chelsea forward Louis Flower has joined Brighton in an academy team switch. He was a regular for the Under-18s last season and played for the Under-21s but, with Chelsea having strengthened their youth teams, has been allowed to leave for a nominal fee.

Dom Smith on Holding to Palace

16:21 , Dominic Booth

Crystal Palace’s imminent signing of Rob Holding feels like a sensible move from the Eagles. The £4million fee is certainly an affordable one, and Palace were in need of bolstering their options in central defence.

The performances over the last year of Marc Guehi and Joachim Andersen were masking a need to add depth in central defence. Veteran James Tomkins is the only other central defender at the club.

When they were promoted back to the Premier League a decade ago, Palace had five experienced centre-backs in their ranks. Holding adds much-needed back-up.

Reguilon could make debut vs Arsenal

16:12 , Dominic Booth

Having been strongly linked with Marc Cucurella, it is Sergio Reguilon who makes the move to Manchester United on a season-long loan deal – and it’s likely he could be thrown straight in against Arsenal on Sunday.

This is what he told the United official website:

“In life you have to be ready for everything and the chance to represent this great club with such an illustrious history is one that I could not turn down.

“Having spoken to the manager, I know what he needs from me, and I am ready to play my part in helping the team to achieve success.”

Hojbjerg turning down moves

16:01 , Dominic Booth

According to widespread reports, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg is set to reject a move to Atletico Madrid from Tottenham. As Standard Sport reported earlier, he does not want to be Joao Palhinha’s replacement at Fulham either. It may leave the Danish international in limbo at Spurs, having been on the periphery of Ange Postecoglou’s plans so far.

Chelsea accept Burnley bid for Maatsen

15:32 , Dominic Booth

Chelsea have accepted an initial loan with obligation worth £31.5million from Burnley for defender Ian Maatsen.

The 21-year-old is reluctant to accept the move to his former loan club having made three appearances under Mauricio Pochettino this season.

Maatsen was more open to a move to West Ham but they have cooled their approach, with Aaron Cresswell now expected to stay.

He may yet choose to move on deadline day with competition from Marc Cucurella remaining after his loan move to Manchester United collapsed yesterday.

Maatsen also has renewed competition from new £40million signing Cole Palmer as he has played out of position in the front four under Pochettino.

As first revealed by Standard Sport, Chelsea want Maatsen to sign a new deal if he chooses to stay in west London.

Two Chelsea youngsters heading on loan

15:15 , Dominic Booth

Nizaar Kinsella reports here:

Chelsea defender Bashir Humphreys is set to join Swansea City on a season-long loan. The 20-year-old has had the move lined up for nearly a month but Mauricio Pochettino gave serious consideration to keeping him in his squad.

However, with players like Reece James soon returning from injury, it was deemed the best move for his development to send him on loan. Norwich City and Stoke City were both also keen on the defender, who has opted to join Michael Duff at the South Wales club.

And Chelsea striker Mason Burstow is set to join Sunderland on a season-long loan deal.

The 20-year-old makes the move after Chelsea added a further attacking option in Cole Palmer, signing him for £40million from Manchester City on deadline day. Burstow will continue his development in the Championship as he celebrates his first start for Chelsea in the 2-1 win over AFC Wimbledon in the Carabao Cup.

Palace make approach for Ekitike

Crystal Palace have made a loan offer with a £26million option to buy bid for PSG forward Hugo Ekitike, writes Nizaar Kinsella.

The Eagles are now considered frontrunners after Eintracht Frankfurt’s approach collapsed. West Ham are also interested but a stay at PSG isn’t discounted either at this stage.

‘Hint of panic about Bees swoop for Maupay'

14:44 , Dominic Booth

That move for Neal Maupay has a small hint of panic about it, writes Malik Ouzia, which is unusual for Brentford.

But I suppose a loan deal makes sense given the gap that needs plugging in terms of depth until Ivan Toney’s return. Mapuay is said to be very keen on the move, which is hardly surprising given Everton’s start to the season. You could argue that the Frenchman’s career has been on a gradual, and then steep, decline ever since he left Griffin Park.
